Thank you, Michelle. I am going to try it. I already use coconut oil which is great but it takes ages for the redness to go away. I don’t have any itching but the red bothers me the most.

Michelle @mishlyn

I have resolved my psoriatic arthritis symptoms just by making diet/lifestyle changes,all i need is completely clear skin and it would be perfect, i dont get psoriaisis bad and i havnt had it bad for years since a child , The groin area has always been the most annoying place and is hard to get clear, could be worse though :)

Itching and flaking 😥


Angie
Angie @angie191

I would eliminate the painful itching, so I could sleep. Also since I have it on my feet and hands I would love no flaking and cracking.

The itching drives me crazy sometimes, so wish that would cease.


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

Hi Flaym. I don't know how I missed this post 😬 but I would go for the redness. Once the redness is gone, the Psoriasis doesn't look bad at all as it will be skin color and we won't get an itch as the P is not inflamed. Once the inflammation is gone, our P becomes better.


Desley
Desley @desley

Same for me, Michelle. The redness is the worst for me because it is visible. Once it goes lighter, less noticeable and on it’s way to disappearing. Luckily I don’t get the itch so it is more the red inflamed look that bothers me the most.
